I Promise, I Hardly Ever Do This

So I doubt that there's anyone who reads this who doesn't know me personally, but on the off chance that there is, allow me to introduce myself via the time-honored Internet tradition of answering a bunch of random questions about one's self. This particular list comes courtesy of Sister:

Do you like blue cheese?
Do you own a gun?
No, unless projectile vomiting infants count.
What flavor Kool Aid is your favorite?
Do you get nervous before a doctor appointment?
Not usually. The only time I can remember was just before getting an MRI.
What do you think of hot dogs?
Sometimes yummy, always unhealthy.
Favorite Christmas movie?
Just about every Christmas movie I've seen stinks to high heaven. So I'm gonna have to go with It's a Wonderful Life.
What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
Moo juice.
Can you do push ups?
Yes, but not as many as I should.
What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?
The only one I own, my wedding ring.
Favorite hobby?
No one favorite. Reading, writing software, playing computer games, playing chess and swing dancing with Gorgeous Wife, though I have little time for any of it ever since I got kids.
Do you have A.D.D.?
Riddled with it, in fact.
What's your weight?
Kinda personal for an online questionnaire, aren't we?
Middle name?
Personal again!
Name three thoughts at this exact moment.
I really should stop blogging and get back to work. I ate a bit too much for dinner. I wish I was home instead of at work.
Name three drinks you regularly drink.
Milk, water and (too much) soda.
Current worry?
When I die, will my kids know whose funeral they're attending?
Current hate right now?
Working late.
Favorite place to be?
How did you bring in the new year?
At home with a very pregnant Gorgeous Wife and our daughter (whose blogging code name I have not yet invented).
Where would you like to go?
Mexico, Puerto Rico, the UK, Italy, Hawai'i. I could come up with others if you twisted my arm.
Name three people who will complete this.
Sister already did. Camille probably will. I have very few blogging friends. *sigh*
Do you own slippers?
Gorgeous Wife's sister got me a pair a while back, and they're very effective at keeping feet warm. Too effective, in fact. Unless it's really cold, I can't wear them for very long or my feet get hot.
What color shirt are you wearing right now?
Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?
Can't say I ever have, so I don't know whether I'd like it.
Can you whistle?
Favorite color?
Blue. Used to be green.
Would you be a pirate?
I'm not too big on pillaging, swilling grog, or disemboweling people, so I guess I wouldn't make a very good pirate. I do enjoy talking like a pirate, though. Matey.
What songs do you sing in the shower?
Ugh. The shower has horrible acoustics.
Favorite girl's name?
Gorgeous Wife's name, of course.
Favorite boy's name?
My son's name. (He needs a blogging code name, too.)
What's in your pocket right now?
Handses! Actually, my wallet. And a hole.
Last thing that made you laugh?
Probably my son making toothless gummy smiles.
Best bed sheets as a child?
Uh, don't remember my childhood bedsheets. Who wrote this thing, anyway?
Worst injury you’ve ever had?
Five stitches under my chin.
Do you love where you live?
It's very nice, but I'd like a standalone house better.
How many TVs do you have in your house?
Only one in active use. We have a little one that's sitting in a closet, and a portable DVD player that gets used on occasion.
Who is your loudest friend?
Probably Camille. Not that I mind. Loud friends are some of the most fun. Loud neighbors, on the other hand...
How many dogs do you have?
None. I'd like one someday, though.
Does someone have a crush on you?
Gorgeous Wife, I hope!
What is your favorite book?
No one favorite. I do enjoy J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and Ken Jennings.
What is your favorite candy?
Butterfinger, Twix or Twizzlers.
Favorite sports team?
Not really a sports fan. I used to follow the Utah Jazz, before John Stockton retired.
What song do you want played at your funeral?
Probably “Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me.” Though what will actually get played is probably something like “Let's Get This Party Started.”
